Does ADD just go away?
In the 3rd grade I would have some people pull me from class and observe me as I played with some toy soldiers and dinosaurs. I still don’t know what the purpose of that was.
In the 4th grade I was put to sit in the back of the room, near the sink, and apart from the rest of the students.
Does this sound like it might have been ADD. Should I seek some kind of help? I am already on Lexapro (since last Wednesday).
For me, I personally have difficulty remembering things so I’m a compulsive list maker.
Also it can just go away. When I was younger my ADD was much stronger and now it’s not as prominent. Many doctors me and my mom (who also has ADD) have gone to have said it can go away as you get older.
What others call ADD I call just being a normal human being.
There are plenty of reasons why we can look like we have ADD. Diet, sitting all day, flourescent lighting, lack of exercise, poor sleeping, and a whole bunch of other innocent little things.
Let me ask you a question. Suppose you had poison ivy all over your arms and legs. Then, you found out you couldn’t concentrate in class. Would you call it ADD or would you call it poison ivy? What I’m saying is that while poison ivy would be obvious to you, there are a ton of other more insidious things that might be distracting you.
I really scoff at and detest this ADD stuff because I have a lot more faith in the human race than doctors and pharmaceuticals do.
ADD is like dyslexia and as an adult you learn to work around it until almost no one knows you have it.
Yes you should seek help but don’t expect too much. Most doctors don’t have a good handle on it and there aren’t that many support groups available.
Be proactive because nobody knows your mind better than yourself.
